Amongst the abundance of fragrance gift sets that are piled up on the store shelves (a sure sign that Christmas is soon approaching) something immediately caught my eye, at first I wondered if I was mistaken, so use was I to only ever seeing fragrance sets with an accompanying body lotions/shower gel, but what a sight to behold, a full sized makeup item paired with the fragrance, this was genius!
The Gloss d’Enfer Maxi Shine in 463 La Petite Robe Noire is an interesting shade, its a sheer lilac/mauve pink with golden shimmer and a high shine/gloss finish.
I really like the lightweight consistency and non sticky/tacky texture of the formula, added to which it also feels comfortable and hydrating.
I probably should mention the fragrance as well, I have to say I was not a fan of the La Petite Robe Noire Eau de Parfum which I found heavy, almost masculine with a smoky edge, The Eau de Toilette smells completely different to me. It is of course lighter as you would expect and still has the cherry note but its more of a sweet fruity-floral tone, I find it very similar to Flowerbomb by Viktor & Rolf.
Now of course you don't have to buy a £53 fragrance set as the gloss is in the regular line up, but certainly if you were after a new fragrance, this lovely gloss is a great incentive to go and give La Petite Robe Noire a sniff.
I bought these from John Lewis.
